We have some exciting news…
Entries are now OPEN for the 2021 Mary’s House Walk.
Over the month of October, we are inviting you to walk in the shoes of women and children escaping domestic violence and commit to a challenge of ‘steps’. Let women and children know that they are not on this journey alone. That this community joins together to say ‘no’ to domestic violence and abuse.
In 2021, we are walking together virtually to support women and children escaping domestic violence and save lives. There are a number of challenges you can commit to or create your own:
INDIVIDUAL: 76,000 steps per week (in honour of the 76 women and children who lost their lives to domestic violence in 2020).
TEAM/FAMILY: 1.6 million steps in the month of October (to represent the 1.6 million women who have experienced physical or sexual violence by a current or previous partner since the age of 15).
COMPANY – 2.2 million steps in October (to represent the 2.2 million women who have experienced emotional abuse by a current or previous partner since the age of 15).
